A new crossing is to be added at a busy junction for pedestrians. The pedestrian crossing will be at the junction of Damside Road and Kings Mill Road where it meets the end of Newsome Road just before Kings Bridge. The route is a well used route by locals and students making their way into Huddersfield Town Centre. The works will commence in May and take around 4 weeks but the route through Newsome Road over the bridge into the Town Centre will be open with the 2 adjoining roads closed off as work take place.
Councillor Andrew Cooper said,
“We have been asking for a safe crossing here for some time and are pleased to let people know that pedestrian facilities are finally to be installed at Kings Bridge. This is a busy route between Newsome and the Town Centre where people literally take their life in their hands crossing this busy road. The works should be complete by the beginning of June.”
